A little like a pitcher to a catcher, right by the batter, WIFF!
My older daughter applied that sorta magic earlier today, when my son was going sideways. It was super to watch, super thankful was I for the magic.
I had run up against it, unable to sway his mood, still looking at a couple hours of work from home, a co-worker waiting for my call.
A change-up, tone, topic, tempo, and he was out of his rut and following her down the hall.
So SO thankful.
On the mound and certainly in life, sometimes the situation you’re in calls for a change-up.
